We’re really enjoying finding new places in The New Forest this year, you can find a perfect walk away from the main crowds by just driving around!
We headed towards Beaulieu but drove through here as it gets super busy and found Crockford Inclosure just over a little bridge. With a good sized car park where you can head in every direction from.
There is a lot of water around this area with streams all around, so be prepared for wet feet and bring your wellies. We visited in a sunny March and it was pretty wet around!
This is a large area with no set paths and routes, well not that we could see through the puddles!!
There were a few New Forest ponies around, but not lots so it was OK for Gus to run around when it was quiet.
I can’t chat about a route to take as we just wander around in a rough circle! I am sure there is a more direct route but for a family walk the kids were quite happy splashing and playing in the massive puddles.
the dog wasn’t making too much of a splash…………..
You could drive into Beaulieu afterwards and walk along the water and find a lovely tea room or an ice cream shop!
